Festival of Youth Dance

Run by South Gloucestershire PE Association, FOYD is in its 5th year and is now so popular it runs over two days at Abbeywood school, involving local primaries and secondary schools. Patchway Community School students from Year 8 performed two pieces, a Commercial dance to ‘Me Too’ by Meghan Trainor and a contemporary/ballet fusion piece to ‘Sail Away’ by Enya. The routines performed have been learned in lesson time and after school in extra curricular time. Year 10 also performed a contemporary piece¬†to ‘Wherever You Will Go’ by Charlene Solaris which really showcased their high ability, along with a jazz dance to ‘Put a Spell On You’ by Annie Lennox which had an interesting supernatural narrative.
